So with all these new accomplishment's Russ gets to baby proof the house, which means we have to go buy new gates for the stairs, the hallway and kitchen.

As you can tell the kids had fun going outside to play in the snow, but boy was it cold. They went out to play right as a new storm was heading in which made it even colder out there for them, needless to say I think they got to play in the snow for maybe 10-15mins before we had to hit the road before it got to bad.
We had a great time and it was fun to see everyone.

It finally feels like winter here, it snowed last night! For the last couple of weeks the weather has been crazy just ask the roses in the front yard :)
While we were at a Christmas party last night it was snowing, but not too much that I couldn't drive there (for any of you that know me I hate the snow) but on the way home Russ got the pleasure to drive us home. The kids were in awe that it was snowing so we had a snow fight in the parking lot, and of course Conner didn't listen and fell into the grass and got soaked - poor little guy was crying the whole way home.
Today should be very interesting as the kids just want to go and play outside, and let me tell you it's freezing out there. I don't remember ever wanting to go outside and play when it was this cold, but what ever make's them happy and tired I'm fine with.

The kids were only interested for all of 5seconds, so I watched him play and let the kids run around and play at the park.
Oh, if you are wondering who won, Russ's team did, Way to go guys!
I guess he was ready for his afternoon nap, lucky little fellow (I could use one right about now).

As you can tell little P is getting a little too big to be taking his bath in the kitchen sink, boy does he love to splash and get everything all wet - he thinks it's funny to do that.
And I can't help but snap the pics of him sleeping, my favorite one is of him holding his toy in the bassinet.

This year it was our turn to have Thanksgiving at our house, and I was super excited to host it but there were a few bumps in the road this year so we went over to Russ's parents this year. The trip over was great, Preston slept the whole time, the big kids watched Shrek 3 and Russ and I talked the whole way - it was prefect drive, plus we got to see some awesome scenery the sun setting on the mountains was so beautiful.
So with Russ's mom out of commission Amanda and I were left to cook the dinner. We planned to eat at 5 o'clock since Steve(Russ's dad) had to go to work, so we took the turkey out of the fridge at about 12:45 and of course it was still a little frozen (come on we have all had this happen to us at least once) so we gave the turkey a warm bath - because we needed to eat by 5, all five of the kids were going to be starving by that time and we needed to get Steve off to work with a full belly. So while Amanda attended to all the other fixings (potatoes, yams etc...) I got to attend to the bird, so I let him soak for about half an hour and much to my surprise he was ready to go. At this point we are about an hour behind schedule getting him into the roaster (the roaster is the best invention ever) so I got the bird all ready to go, made up a special seasoning recipe and put that bird in the roaster at 2:05 and much to everyone's amazement he was done at 4:45 -yes I said the bird was done (fully cooked we checked it 3 times before we took it out) before 5 o'clock (that is why I love my roaster) I'm sure record time for anyone. The food was amazing and the dessert spread was even better.

Way to go Russ!

Yes you read it right, I am going to the concert tonight with a bunch of girl friends, it should be fun. I do feel bad though, Russ (my wonderful husband) will be taking on the task of caring for our four children. Russ is very capable of caring for them, I am more worried about baby P - this will be the first time we will be apart for more than 2hrs, I hope and pray that he will be good and not cry too much for Russ. I have asked Madie (aka Mini Mom) to help dad out with him, she is really good at feeding him his bottle's and changing diapers, yes she dose diapers.
I will update you all on how the concert was tomorrow.
****Update**** the concert was so fun, they were awesome and the seats were amazing, way to go Tania on the seats.

I love how inventive my kids are, they will use any household item to use as a mic for their singing group or web show (that's a whole other story), or a metal bowl for a drum - you name my kids will think of some game to play.
Well with no school today or tomorrow they have invented this game called Hollywood, yes Hollywood don't ask where they came up with it or how it's played but all they seem to do is fight over who is driving the limo, yes they turned the kitchen chairs into a limo (see pics), and Madie is the Mom and Izaiah is the driver and Conner, Ryder and yes baby Preston are all pass angers in the limo.
The creative minds of children oh how you have to love them.

This year the kids decided to go around the neighborhood rather than go to our churches Fall Festival of Funniness were we would have been nice and warm, oh well they had so much fun this year.
Here are some cute pics, enjoy * and yes you see all their candy in the bowls sitting in front of them and yes Preston fell a sleep half way through the night*
